Light rail construction not adversely impacting access to our offices

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

The construction of the light rail’s Central Corridor line between Minneapolis and St. Paul through the University of Minnesota campus and down University Avenue is now underway.  It has been well publicized that traffic on University Avenue is a mess and access to businesses along the route is difficult if not impossible.

The good news for our law firm, however, is that where we are located on University Avenue is an oasis of calm.  The light rail route will pass close by, but will not be directly on University Avenue right outside of our office – instead it will be a block or so north of University Avenue when it passes our offices.  Consequently, there is no construction here – access to our building and our parking lot is unimpeded, all four lanes of University Avenue are open and you can even park on the street if you prefer that over our free parking lot.

If you need to come to our offices for whatever reason, please do not fear what you’ve heard or seen in the press about light rail construction on University Avenue.  In our neighborhood, it is business as usual.

1000 Social Security Cases Concluded

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

In the Spring of 2011, Paul Livgard concluded his 1000th Social Security disability case.  While we have been able to assist clients in their initial applications and requests for reconsideration, the vast majority of the matters have been concluded following a hearing before an administrative law judge where our clients are able to make their cases before a real person and to have Paul present their medical evidence and arguments as to why they should receive benefits.

It is no secret that Paul is one of the most experienced, most successful and highly regarded attorneys handling Social Security cases in Minnesota.  As a result, the firm’s Social Security practice is currently booming.  More and more people are coming to Livgard & Lloyd seeking representation in disability matters.  Many see our television ads and relate to the scenarios described.  Others are referred by their friends or family members who have been well represented by the firm in other cases.  Still others come to us who are unhappy with their current representation, often by out of towners who won’t answer questions or who seem to see the claimant as simply the next file that has to be dealt with but only when the time to get the case resolved arrives.

Paul enjoys the opportunity to help people who, because of their circumstances, really need the help.  He also enjoys the challenge presented by the cases, many of which have lengthy and complicated medical histories.  Paul and our staff of dedicated professionals continue to treat every client as an individual and with the utmost respect.  We understand that, no matter how many of these cases we pursue over the years, your case is the most important one to you.
